Set just after the American civil war, businessman and inventor Victor Barbicane invents a new source of power called Power X. He plans to use it to power rockets, and to show its potential he plans to send a projectile to the moon. Joining him for the trip are his assistant Ben Sharpe, Barbicane's arch-rival Stuyvesant Nicholl, and Nicholl's daughter Virginia. Nicholl believes that Power X goes against the will of God and sabotages the projectile so that they cannot return to earth, setting up a suspenseful finale as they battle to repair the projectile.Written by
Fans of the Classic "Forbidden Planet" might enjoy this movie. The sound effects are lifted from the sound effects of Forbidden Planet (1953). They just cut and pasted as needed. I kept thinking of the Krell throughout this movie.
